On the 24th March, 2003 and the 25th February 2004 the Archaeological Field Unit of Cambridgeshire County Council (AFU) undertook two phases of archaeological monitoring work at Coronation Avenue, Throckenholt, in advance of the construction of fourteen dwellings and associated access roads and services. The aim of the investigation was to record and assess the nature of any archaeological evidence encountered before construction and hence to assess the potential for surviving remains. Given the subject site's location to the east of substantial Iron Age and Roman remains the area was considered to have high archaeological potential.
During the archaeological monitoring work no archaeological features were discovered. The absence of remains may be due to the low-lying nature of the land which rendered it prone to flooding only useful on a seasonal basis. This would account for the presence of a drainage ditch, identified by aerial photography and geophysical survey, to the south-west of the area investigated.
